I forgot that I installed several MySQL (or MariaDB) packages on my Mac, such as rpm or source code packages.

    The PrefPane is "hard wired" to /usr/local/mysql which is a symlink to /usr/local/mysql-<version>-<macos-version>... (usually the Oracle MySQL installer). – klanomath Aug 17 '17 at 4:13
